I must wear my glasses while out shopping, I must wear my glasses while out shopping.
Write that 100 times you naughty boy!
The temples of Dinajpur, the tea gardens of Sylhet and the rain forests of Sundarban are all in Bangladesh, but this beer hasn’t been anywhere near them.
I am trying to drink round the world, this beer hasn’t helped.
The truth is I quiet liked the beer (for a UK brewed lager).
Brown 660ml bottle, best before 31 Mar 09, drank Feb 09.
The normal pale golden yellow that all lager/pilsners/helles usually appear like. the same small white disappearing head and the same non-aroma most have too. Thin looking, as again some lagers tend to do.
This beer however was a sweet version, not sickly, but even in the non-aroma there was a hint of something sweeter than normal.
It had flavour too, nothing huge, just a presence and a bodyfeel over and above your regular Curry cooling lager, maybe the 5.2% alcohol helped?
Even though I was disappointed to discover it came from Hepworth’s I enjoyed the beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a clear and golden beer with a weak white head. The aroma is malt, sulphur, fruit, yeast, phenolic and banana. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness. Overall a boring beer.

Bottle. Very sweet and mild beer with a misplaced harsh and unclean finish. Quite meaningless really.
